Inslee and state legislators in town Wednesday to discuss greenhouse limits

Climate change is on the agenda Wednesday, when Washington Gov. Jay Insell comes to Spokane to take part in the first of three Climate Legislative Executive Workgroup (CLEW) meetings. The meetings have the goal of promoting carbon reduction and clean energy investment, according to a press release.

The workshop runs from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the Music Building Auditorium, Spokane Falls Community College.

Inslee and several legislators will discuss a number of optins to incentivize changes, including cap and price on carbon pollution, a clean fuels standard, an end to “coal-by-wire” energy from out of state, along with new transportation planning and investments in energy efficiency.

The Spokane hearing will be followed by hearings held in Seattle Oct.  23 and in Olympia on Dec. 6.

The workshops stem from legislation that  require Washington state to find recommendations to achieve the state's greenhouse gas emissions limits and greenhouse gas emissions targets.
